TWO women were punched by a man at a Portsmouth taxi rank – and he took off his T-shirt during the attack.
The flare-up happened at the rank outside Debenhams in Osborne Road, Southsea.
Police say the women were punched as they tried to get into a cab.
One of the victims, a 50-year-old, reported being dragged from a taxi by a woman, who had arrived at the rank with a group of people.
The first victim was then punched by a man. He is also reported to have punched a 34-year-old woman who was with the first victim.
Police say the man was with a group of nine other people.
He was white, about 5ft 5in, and in his 30s with short brown cropped hair. He was wearing a blue T-shirt which he took off during the incident.
The incident happened just after midnight on September 8.
A police spokeswoman said: ‘Fortunately the women were not seriously injured.’
